The best way to learn more about our birds is to complete our parrot match application, found under the "Adoption" tab on our website, The nice volunteer who answers PetFinders inquiries cannot tell you about specific individuals.

Cash is a 19 year old female blue and gold macaw. She is looking for her 3rd home through Phoenix Landing.  Macaws usually need several homes across their hopeful long lives!  Females are definitely more easy going, although its pretty natural for macaws to have a favorite someone. In the wild, they live in small family groups.   

Cash has some missing feathers on her belly, a common thing for many blue and golds.  We dont understand all the reasons for feather destruction, and often they wont grow back - but good food, enrichment and a positive environment will make for a happy life regardless!

Our process: after you complete a core class (recommended for anyone!) you will be connected with the adoption coordinator for your area. Attending one of our core parrot care classes is also required in order to adopt a parrot. A list of them may be found at Those classes that count as part of the adoption process are noted with an icon beside their title.

Phoenix Landing offers educational classes and facilitates parrot adoptions in Maryland, D.C., Virginia, North Carolina, and northern Florida. Phoenix Landing does not ship birds.

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
